I have been going to Charlies for years now, not regularly, just every once in a while. As for the place itself, its a bit humid and noise level is high. Some waitresses have been nice, others have been on the ""i dont care on waiting on anyone"" side. The food has varried from each visit. Sometimes the shrimp is super and others it has been border line. The hushpuppies are very good and don't eat too many or you will have no room for the rest of your meal. The prices are very good and it is worth the visit if you are in town for some home grown restaurants.
